I took Amber out to Rangoon (aka Rangiora) on Saturday for the Two Squirrels garage sale, and to pick up a bicycle she had won off Trade Me.
(Amber collects retro bicycles!)
It appears I was on a roll with the green and orange combo!

I believe the patterning is called crocodile stitch.
The lovely Clare passed this award on to me!
I have to share 7 interesting facts about myself:
1: I have a phobia about being underground
2: I can watch movies where people are being brutalised and not be moved, but if it's animals I can't bear it!
3: I love vinegar, and will even drink it from the bottle
4: I have been a member of the Abba, Duran Duran and Models (Australian band) fanclubs in my youth.
5: I saw Simple Minds twice in 1986, and Jim Kerr winked at me...probably because I was exposing a fair amount of cleavage.
6: When doing Bohemian Rhapsody at kareoke once, with my friend Justine, I peed myself laughing and had to go home.
(I cried with laughter all the way through, and could only manage the ooo bits. Justine had to carry the show.)
7: I can't look at a bottle of Southern Comfort without shuddering due to not one but two unpleasant experiences.
